TASKMASTER REVEALS CONTESTANTS FOR NEXT SERIES ON CHANNEL 4

As another series of epic tasking draws to a close, the almighty Greg Davies and his Little Alex Horne are already excited to welcome the next batch of bright-eyed hopefuls to their BAFTA and National Comedy Award winning, international hit show. Taskmaster series 18 is set to air later this year on Channel 4.



Hoping to pass muster and be the best are: comedian, host of The Bugle Podcast and cricket statistician Andy Zaltzman (The News Quiz, BBC Radio 4), comedian, actor and podcaster Babatunde Aléshé (Celebrity Gogglebox, C4).



Plus actor, comedian and writer Emma Sidi (Starstruck, BBC Three/HBO Max), legendary stand-up and writer Jack Dee (I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, BBC Radio 4), and stand-up, presenter, actor and author Rosie Jones (Trip Hazard, C4).

 

Elsewhere, Taskmaster: The Live Experience has been confirmed to go ahead, and will launch this Autumn. Taking place at Dock X in London’s Canada Water from 18th September 2024. Taskmaster: The Live Experience gives fans the chance to step into the shoes of their favourite comedians and enter the iconic Taskmaster House.



Based on the BAFTA and National Comedy Award winning hit TV show, brand-new ridiculous and infuriating tasks set in the lab, living room, shed and other recognisable locations will get contestants battling for points, culminating in a final in the studio theatre where one player will win the Taskmaster’s seal of approval.

 

This summer also sees the launch of the brand-new Taskmaster VR Game, the eagerly anticipated game from Scallywag Arcade released on Meta Quest and SteamVR allows players to step into the contestants’ shoes by competing in extraordinary challenges or to fill the industrious boots of the Taskmaster’s Assistant by creating tasks of their own and challenging their friends in local play.



Taskmaster airs on Channel 4.
